Ultimate Justification Rorty V 8
Foundation/final justification/RortyVsHabermas: I am distrustful of the remaining fundamentalism, striving for "universality." Habermas celebrates democracy, but he does not justify it. When HabermasVsFoucault raised the accusation of relativism and asked him to expose his "normative standards",
Rorty: here I stand on the side of Foucault, who shrugs his shoulders and is silent.
V 9
World/Language/RortyVsHabermas: VsClaim, that the world-developing (poetic) power of language (Heidegger, Foucault) must be subordinated to the practice of the inner world.
